    Principlism, Medical Individualism, and Health Promotion in Resource-Poor Countries: Can Autonomy-Based Bioethics Promote Social Justice and Population Health? [REVIEW]Jacquineau Azétsop & Stuart Rennie - 2010 - Philosophy, Ethics, and Humanities in Medicine 5:1.
    Through its adoption of the biomedical model of disease which promotes medical individualism and its reliance on the individual-based anthropology, mainstream bioethics has predominantly focused on respect for autonomy in the clinical setting and respect for person in the research site, emphasizing self-determination and freedom of choice. However, the emphasis on the individual has often led to moral vacuum, exaggeration of human agency, and a thin (liberal?) conception of justice. Applied to resource-poor countries and communities within developed countries, autonomy-based bioethics (...)

  3. Epistemological and Ethical Assessment of Obesity Bias in Industrialized Countries.Jacquineau Azétsop & Tisha R. Joy - 2011 - Philosophy, Ethics, and Humanities in Medicine 6:16-.
    Bernard Lonergan's cognitive theory challenges us to raise questions about both the cognitive process through which obesity is perceived as a behaviour change issue and the objectivity of such a moral judgment. Lonergan's theory provides the theoretical tools to affirm that anti-fat discrimination, in the United States of America and in many industrialized countries, is the result of both a group bias that resists insights into the good of other groups and a general bias of anti-intellectualism that tends to set (...)

    Access to Antiretroviral Treatment, Issues of Well-Being and Public Health Governance in Chad: What Justifies the Limited Success of the Universal Access Policy?Jacquineau Azétsop & Blondin A. Diop - 2013 - Philosophy, Ethics, and Humanities in Medicine 8:8.
    Universal access to antiretroviral treatment (ART) in Chad was officially declared in December 2006. This presidential initiative was and is still funded 100% by the country’s budget and external donors’ financial support. Many factors have triggered the spread of AIDS. Some of these factors include the existence of norms and beliefs that create or increase exposure, the low-level education that precludes access to health information, social unrest, and population migration to areas of high economic opportunities and gender-based discrimination. Social forces (...)

    Access to Nutritious Food, Socioeconomic Individualism and Public Health Ethics in the USA: A Common Good Approach.Jacquineau Azétsop & Tisha R. Joy - 2013 - Philosophy, Ethics, and Humanities in Medicine 8:16.
    Good nutrition plays an important role in the optimal growth, development, health and well-being of individuals in all stages of life. Healthy eating can reduce the risk of chronic diseases, such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes and some types of cancer. However, the capitalist mindset that shapes the food environment has led to the commoditization of food. Food is not just a marketable commodity like any other commodity. Food is different from other commodities on the market in that it is (...)

    The Right to Health, Health Systems Development and Public Health Policy Challenges in Chad.Jacquineau Azétsop & Michael Ochieng - 2015 - Philosophy, Ethics, and Humanities in Medicine 10:1.
    There is increasing consensus that the right to health can provide ethical, policy and practical groundings for health systems development. The goals of the right to health are congruent with those of health systems development, which are about strengthening health promotion organizations and actions so as to improve public health. The poor shape and performance of health systems in Chad question the extent of realization of the right to health. Due to its comprehensiveness and inclusiveness, the right to health has (...)
